Dante said that the players are now getting used to Pep Guardiola's style of play, which was proved by the victory over one of the tournament favourites.
"It was a very important win because we know Man City are a very strong team and to get a win here means we're very close to qualifying and hopefully in first place," UEFA.com quotes Dante as saying.
"We're adapting very well [under Guardiola], he's a great person, a great professional. He speaks good German after a short time, and we're all keen to continue evolving with his philosophy."
Bayern's next game in the group is at home to Viktoria Plzen on October 23.
